Usually pale ales are not my cup of tea (or beer if you will). However, there is something very compelling about Brooklyn's IPA's complex taste and drinkability.

The orange and green label is both inviting and festive. Although the initial taste can be bitter and frightening, we learn that the overall feeling is of a quite essential alcoholic necessity. In conclusion, the alcohol percentage was a plus, as well as the foreign aspects of the beer itself. George Hodgson should be proud.
